The Milky Way and the Aurora

Uploaded by: astrophotographer

Saturday July 6, 2013

Awamoa, New Zealand

Caption: A nice aurora and also the display of wildfire around us made it a magical night. At last I have captured the green aurora on the horizon with the red glow above it. A pity about the light pollution. Canon 5D Mk11 ISO 1250 exposure about a minute or so. An 8-15mm Canon lens.

About astrophotographer

astrophotographer

I am very keen on astrophotography, atmospherics and nature photography.The passion for photography has been with me for 60 odd years and is still as strong as ever.My first camera was a 127 format given to me when I was 8yrs old, my father showing us how to develop film, in the bathtub, needless to say it became stained much to my mothers annoyance.I guess my profession, Radiography, was a natural way to combine taking pictures with a hobby, most radiographers in my training years had cameras so we all took photos and compared them, always striving to outdo each other.I have always had an interest in Infra-Red photography and we used to play around with IR film in the B&W days, of course we have advanced so much in the digital world of IR I had my camera converted for IR only...it was a bonus as the exposures are as if it was a white light camera. Fast shutter speeds and the resulting images are sometime bad but mostly intriguing. Although I enjoy my work in helping the patient the time has come at the end of 2014 to drop to three days a week, get out on my motorcycle(s) and take a few more photos of the natural world.
